I began my 32nd year in the School of Business Administration at Gonzaga University in the fall of 2017. I strongly believe in the education that Gonzaga provides its students; it is second to none. The University's Jesuit mission, the excellence of our faculty, the expertise of our staff, and the quality of our students combine to produce an outstanding academic experience. We are a first-rate business school and the fact that we are such a school within a tremendous liberal arts university makes our business education all the better.
